Just wondering what kind of experience others out there in chicken land have had with hawks and crows... Some of you know from my past postings, i consider the crow an ally in my attempt to protect my hens from hawks, in my case red tail hawks mostly. One poster hear, i forget his/her name from Oregon, says they have observed/worked with crows to protect their chickens..By working with crows i mean encouraging them to stay around your property, by feeding them some food scraps and not shooting at them.The crows around my place love the treats i give them, and are on a hawks tail feathers ,that shows up around here in most cases in quick time. One woman here commented that she hated crows ever since one flew off with a chick from her yard..okay, crows have their ways, and will rob nest, steal eggs and chicks if they can. Still, myself i think they are more good than bad, when it comes to warning chickens of the hawks presents and chasing the hawks off... What are your thoughts, experiences with this topic...?
